Writing

Hi! My name is Jamila and I took two jobs from upwork where they asked me to contact on Telegram. I was asked to convert a pdf file to a word by rewriting it. I completed it in 3days and asked the client to pay. They first said that it was transfered but I didn't get any message. Upon questioning he asked me to deposit a 50$ fee to make the transfer. I completed it and while trying to withdraw, I was unable to. They again asked me to deposit a 150$ fee to  buy the verification code. Plz tell me whether I should deposit or not. Thank you!

BTW they gave me their website link too it was **Edited for Community Guidelines**

Hi Jamila,

 

Thank you for reaching out to us. Sharing of contact info prior to a contract starting is against ToS and one of the most common scams is when the client wants to take your conversation to Telegram. Real clients will not ask for you to pay a despoit fee as well.

 

We highly suggest reviewing our ToS, reading these tips on how to avoid questionable jobs, and this post from our Community member, Wes, about top red flags for scams for you to keep yourself safe in the marketplace. Should you also encounter any suspicious user activity again in the future, please send us a flag so the dedicated team can review it and take action as soon as possible.

Hi Rukhsana,

 

Here are some tips on how to get started on Upwork:
  • Complete your profile: Take time to provide accurate and complete information about yourself and your skills. This will help clients find you and determine if you're a good fit for their projects.
  • Add your portfolio to your Upwork profile: If you have work samples and past projects, add them to your Upwork portfolio. It gives clients an idea of your skills and experience.
  • Propose your services: Browse through the projects in the marketplace and apply for projects that interest you and align with your skills. Your proposal should include your experience and skills and why you're a good fit for the project.
Check out these Upwork Academy courses to kickstart your journey:
Remember that getting hired as a freelancer on Upwork can be competitive, so itโ€™s important to have a strong profile and portfolio and submit well-written proposals.
 
Good luck!

Yes 

It's important to clarify payment terms upfront and have a contract in place when working with freelancers on platforms like Upwork to ensure both parties understand the agreement.

You need to take some Academy courses at the top of this page before sending more proposals. You are not using Upwork properly and can get your account suspended for violating multiple rules.
